Saturday, November 4, 2017

Time 10:00 AM – 1:00 PM
Subject Sorella Forte Women’s Club Ride
Location 706 SE Martin Luther King Jr Blvd, Portland, OR
We lead women-only rides from River City Bicycles in Portland every Saturday.
These rides are geared to (no pun intended) the intermediate rider. If you are brand new to cycling, the pace and ride length will probably exceed your limits. You can always come try us out with the option of turning back if need be.
So what is the pace? Typical (total ride) average speed is 15-17 mph — faster than a recreational cruise, but almost always conversational pace….well, except for the hills.
How long? Be prepared to ride 30-40 miles, often with hills.
Place? We leave from River City Bicycles (706 SE Martin Luther King Blvd) at 9 a.m. every Saturday, all year long.
Start Time: Rides start at 9 a.m. sharp! Please be on time ready to ride. If driving to River City, please park on the street, NOT in the River City parking lot, and allow yourself at least 15 minutes to get ready.
If you’d like to join us for a ride just show up ready to ride, or email Sorella’s Club Ride Coordinator for upcoming ride specifics (route description, distance). We can also add you to our Saturday Ride E-mail list for future ride announcements.
Do we ride in the rain? Heck ya! But please come prepared. If we don’t think you are dressed appropriately, we reserve the right to turn you away (treating hypothermia on the roadside isn’t fun). Here are some guidelines:

Thermal tights and a warm first layer for your core area
Long sleeved jersey or arm and leg warmers
Booties (these are shoe covers, they repel water/wind to help keep your feet warm)
Warm gloves (thicker than you think if it is near 40 degrees out). If it’s raining, bring an extra pair if you’ve got them.
A good rain coat (Gore Bike Wear and Showers Pass are great brands)
And lastly, PLEASE install fenders on your bike! Bolted on, full fenders with mud flap extensions. Fenders keep you drier, especially your back side, but also keep from spraying the rider behind you. If it’s raining buckets and you don’t have fenders, you will be sent to the back of the pack.

Only handmade arts & crafts will be judged.

Subject The Sauvie Shootout
Location 941 NW Overton St, Portland, OR, 97209, United States
We depart every Sunday at 9 AM from Ovation Coffee -941 NW Overton
If you’re new to racing, ask Andrew for FREE 1 day OBRA membership for your first race of the season
This ride is different every week based on WHO shows up, not WHERE it goes. (Route – https://ridewithgps.com/routes/19052761)
“A” group will be spirited race simulation with 2 sprints per lap as marked on the route map. “B” group will roll a tempo paceline on the island for those not looking to race- also sweeping up those shelled from the ‘A” group.
Please help ensure the longevity of The Sauvie Shootout by calling out those that are blatantly breaking the rules of the road. I don’t want to be a nag, but I really don’t want to see law enforcement nor angry Island Residents threaten the health of the Sauvie Shootout. Additionally, please take the opportunity to meet new people and welcome new faces to the group as well as catching up with your crew.
Let’s make sure we hold a neutral tempo pace on Hwy 30 and take the right lane. When we drop off the bridge onto the Island- it’s on. At this point, let’s split into A, B and C groups. If you get shot out of the back of a group, sit up and rest until you get swept up by the group behind you. It’s not only more fun to ride the island in a group, its a great opportunity to meet cyclists and practice your skills riding in close proximity of others.
please INVITE YOUR FRIENDS! #sauvieshootout
In the unfortunate event of a flat on Hwy 30, the group will continue on. Please go counterclockwise on Sauvie until you see the group approaching, then turn around to jump back in.
The Sauvie Shootout, a spirited weekly group drop ride, is intended to meet the diverse needs of cyclists in PDX including CAT 1/2/3/4/5 racers as well as club riders and Masters. I am offering my signature double-your-money-back guarantee if you are not completely satisfied. One great benefit is that the Shootout follows the same route each week. Stay with me here- it is ANYTHING but boring. Riders get shelled from the Shootout every single week, but they keep coming back and try to make it a few more miles before falling off the next week. It will stoke the fire in the belly to train harder and do better the next week. The sense of cycling community a consistent ride like this creates is incredible.

She is an advocate and activist who works in support of LGBTQA rights, as well as fighting for social justice and healthy communities. She moved to Los Angeles from Omaha, Nebraska, and became interested in active transportation when she met her wife. It was on bike rides that she fell in love with the city. Uniquely positioned as a queer black woman to understand what marginalized people experience every day, she brought passion, energy and intersectionality to the quest for better bicycle access as the executive director of the Los Angeles Bicycle Coalition. In her new role with the L.A. Neighborhood Land Trust, she continues to help address social and racial equity through building parks and gardens in park-poor communities across Greater Los Angeles.
Butler is a featured speaker at the 2017 National Walking Summit in St. Paul this September, and gave the keynote at the 2016 NACTO Designing Cities conference in Seattle. Prior to leading the L.A. Bicycle Coalition, she was the director of social change strategies at Liberty Hill Foundation, and worked at Young Invincibles as the California director. She received her J.D. from Stanford Law School and her B.A. in Psychology and B.S. in Sociology in her hometown of Omaha, Nebraska.

Most people THINK they know all the rules that relate to bicycling in Oregon…until they attend our FREE Rules of the Road clinic.
Join us for an intensive clinic concerning Oregon bicycle and pedestrian laws, insurance information, and what to do if you’re in a crash.
Ray Thomas literally wrote the book on Oregon’s bike-related laws. It’s called “Pedal Power” and all attendees of his 60-minute clinic receive a free copy.
Rules of the Road Clinics are in conjunction with Thomas, Coon, Newton & Frost.

Time 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM
Subject Sorella Forte Women’s Club Ride
Location 706 SE Martin Luther King Jr Blvd, Portland, OR
We lead women-only rides from River City Bicycles in Portland every Saturday.
These rides are geared to (no pun intended) the intermediate rider. If you are brand new to cycling, the pace and ride length will probably exceed your limits. You can always come try us out with the option of turning back if need be.
So what is the pace? Typical (total ride) average speed is 15-17 mph — faster than a recreational cruise, but almost always conversational pace….well, except for the hills.
How long? Be prepared to ride 30-40 miles, often with hills.
Place? We leave from River City Bicycles (706 SE Martin Luther King Blvd) at 9 a.m. every Saturday, all year long.
Start Time: Rides start at 9 a.m. sharp! Please be on time ready to ride. If driving to River City, please park on the street, NOT in the River City parking lot, and allow yourself at least 15 minutes to get ready.
If you’d like to join us for a ride just show up ready to ride, or email Sorella’s Club Ride Coordinator for upcoming ride specifics (route description, distance). We can also add you to our Saturday Ride E-mail list for future ride announcements.
Do we ride in the rain? Heck ya! But please come prepared. If we don’t think you are dressed appropriately, we reserve the right to turn you away (treating hypothermia on the roadside isn’t fun). Here are some guidelines:

Thermal tights and a warm first layer for your core area
Long sleeved jersey or arm and leg warmers
Booties (these are shoe covers, they repel water/wind to help keep your feet warm)
Warm gloves (thicker than you think if it is near 40 degrees out). If it’s raining, bring an extra pair if you’ve got them.
A good rain coat (Gore Bike Wear and Showers Pass are great brands)
And lastly, PLEASE install fenders on your bike! Bolted on, full fenders with mud flap extensions. Fenders keep you drier, especially your back side, but also keep from spraying the rider behind you. If it’s raining buckets and you don’t have fenders, you will be sent to the back of the pack.

Time 9:00 AM – 1:00 PM
Subject The Sauvie Shootout
Location 941 NW Overton St, Portland, OR, 97209, United States
We depart every Sunday at 9 AM from Ovation Coffee -941 NW Overton
If you’re new to racing, ask Andrew for FREE 1 day OBRA membership for your first race of the season
This ride is different every week based on WHO shows up, not WHERE it goes. (Route – https://ridewithgps.com/routes/19052761)
“A” group will be spirited race simulation with 2 sprints per lap as marked on the route map. “B” group will roll a tempo paceline on the island for those not looking to race- also sweeping up those shelled from the ‘A” group.
Please help ensure the longevity of The Sauvie Shootout by calling out those that are blatantly breaking the rules of the road. I don’t want to be a nag, but I really don’t want to see law enforcement nor angry Island Residents threaten the health of the Sauvie Shootout. Additionally, please take the opportunity to meet new people and welcome new faces to the group as well as catching up with your crew.
Let’s make sure we hold a neutral tempo pace on Hwy 30 and take the right lane. When we drop off the bridge onto the Island- it’s on. At this point, let’s split into A, B and C groups. If you get shot out of the back of a group, sit up and rest until you get swept up by the group behind you. It’s not only more fun to ride the island in a group, its a great opportunity to meet cyclists and practice your skills riding in close proximity of others.
please INVITE YOUR FRIENDS! #sauvieshootout
In the unfortunate event of a flat on Hwy 30, the group will continue on. Please go counterclockwise on Sauvie until you see the group approaching, then turn around to jump back in.
The Sauvie Shootout, a spirited weekly group drop ride, is intended to meet the diverse needs of cyclists in PDX including CAT 1/2/3/4/5 racers as well as club riders and Masters. I am offering my signature double-your-money-back guarantee if you are not completely satisfied. One great benefit is that the Shootout follows the same route each week. Stay with me here- it is ANYTHING but boring. Riders get shelled from the Shootout every single week, but they keep coming back and try to make it a few more miles before falling off the next week. It will stoke the fire in the belly to train harder and do better the next week. The sense of cycling community a consistent ride like this creates is incredible.
